Welcome New Client Ann Dee Ellis

Ann Dee Ellis_picI am so excited to be representing the phenomenal Ann Dee Ellis, author of This is What I DidEverything is Fine, and The End or Something Like That. I’ve been a fan of Ann Dee’s superlative, heart-breaking writing for many years, and was fortunate enough to meet her at the Writing and Illustrating for Young Readers conference In Utah back in 2012. Ann Dee has a knack for tackling immense yet personal issues with gorgeous prose– I have never *not* cried reading one of her novels, and it’s a joy to now be working with her.

Ann Dee teaches writing at Brigham Young University and spends the rest of her time hanging out with her husband and five energetic kids in the foothills of the rocky mountains.

Welcome to the family, Ann Dee!This Is What I Did
